PREGNANT Kimberley Lyon hit a woman in the face during a fracas in The Cloisters shopping mall in Ely.

"She used her clenched fist to hit Rebecca Storey in the face a number of times," prosecutor Laura Mardell told city magistrates.

"The complainant broke off, but the defendant kept screaming and hitting her."

Lyon, 25, of High Street, Stretham, admitted assaulting Ms Storey on November 12.

But solicitor Michael Judkins said a maximum of two punches were delivered by Lyon.

"She felt intimidated, she was seven or eight months pregnant," he said. "She very much regrets this incident and wants to say sorry to the victim."

The court gave Lyon a 24-month conditional discharge and ordered her to pay £85 costs.
